As an apology for both my lack of presence on LJ, and my angsty post last night, and as a thank you for how wonderful all you guys are, I have decided to tell you guys about my plan to make some felt badges/brooches. I want to make some Alice In Wonderland style ones (mostly Chessur smiles and teacups and hats) and of course, I also want to make some comic ones!

And I am opening myself up for requests! If there is anything you'd like made for you (and it isn't crazy complicated) then drop me a note here or via email and I'll make it for you and ship it off to wherever you are.

I can't make any guarantees on how long this will take, but I will get it to you eventually! For the moment I'd like to limit it to one request per person until I work out a time frame for production of these things.

They'll probably be about 2 or 3 inches big, obviously depending on what I'm actually making, but I'd like to keep them to about that size, and they'll have a safety pin on the back so you can pin them to yourself/your bag/small children. If you'd rather the felt creation be put on a small purse (for example I'm making a Cheshire Cat purse, using blue and grey fabric and sewing a felt smile on. Or if you wanted the S symbol, I could sew it onto a blue, yellow and red purse). I'm not sure about the terminology here, so I'll just clarify, by 'purse' I mean coin purse; it's just two pieces of fabric sewn together, lined, with a zipper on the top. They're about hand-sized.

I'm pretty sure I could have made this post a lot more succinct and less confusing, but if you have any questions just ask!

LJ is meant for venting. You needn't apologize.

It sounds like you're feeling a bit better about life and I'm glad you've found something to distract yourself.

I would LOVE a badge. I have the cupcake one you gave me pinned to my purse. I'll make you a necklace in return and send it down your way.

I got my birthday gift in the mail last week. I kept forgetting to tell you. He's ADORABLE. I have named him Radcliffe and he sleeps next to my bed. <3

I try to vent over on tumblr now because that is meant for venting, but *she* is on tumblr and I didn't really want her knowing how distressed I am.

Yeah I do feel a bit better. I slept pretty well last night and am trying to focus on other things for the rest of forever.

But what sort of badge do you want?! Speaking of necklaces, I think I'm going to head to the bead shop soon because I have lots of pretty pendants but no beads to put with them.

YAY! I am glad he didn't get lost in the mail. Radcliffe is a wonderful name! I hope you give him lots of cuddles ^_^

I don't even know what tumblr is. I am out of the loop. D:

A good night's sleep does WONDERS for completely emotionally draining problems. You can only be that stressed for so long before your body decides it needs to stop. I think you just need to time to process and think for a bit.

Any sort. I love Alice, as you know, and comic books. I'm an Easy Boo. :D

I was actually quoting Alice to Gloria yesterday. She was telling me about how she used to pretend to be a lion and it totally reminded me of Alice pretending to be a hyena. :D

I also had 'Child of the pure unclouded brow' stuck in my head on Friday.

Remember Justine:

And though the shadow of a sigh
May tremble through the story,
For happy summer days gone by,
And vanished summer glory
It shall not touch with breath of bale
The pleasence of our fairy tale.

It's a photoblog site www.tumblr.com and it's mostly good for looking at pretty pictures and being an angsty teenager.

It got to about 11 last night and I was just so exhausted that I decided to go to bed early and I slept in until 9. So I had a nice long sleep and it definitely helped. It also cleared up the cold that was threatening to develop.

Alright then! I'll start making things and pick one that I think you'll like.

I quote Alice all the time, I have a friend who loves it as much as I do, and we talk about it all the time. It's awesome.

That is a really lovely poem. I haven't heard it before.

Ah, see I cannot produce pretty pictures and I learned to angst on LJ. :D

I'm glad you avoided a cold. Spring colds are always miserable because it's so pretty out and you're stuck inside sneezing. :(

Spring always makes me want to eat oatmeal cookies and watch Sailor Moon, incidentally.

This sounds like an excellent plan. :D

I quote it at my mother all the time. She's never read it but she loves to hear me recite poetry. Everyone else just rolls their eyes.

That poem is one of my favorites, it actually reminds me quite a lot of my father. I saw a Rufus Sided Towhee on his birthday. I'm convinced it sent it to make me smile. <3

But you have a personal LJ. I feel guilty angsting on my LJ when I don't actually produce much fandom stuff to go with it ^_^;

Silly Bek, I am on the other side of the world. It is Fall over here!

Aww, I am glad your mother enjoys you reciting poetry. I think my mom would just roll her eyes at me.

Because it is from Alice. Ugh.

I've only read Through the Looking Glass once because I suck ):
Apr. 6th, 2010 01:03 am (UTC)
Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There is my favorite Alice book. I assume you prefer Alice's Adventures in Wonderland?

The poetry in Through the Looking Glass is the best. I've read it so many times I know most of it by heart.

Have you read any of Carroll's work? I love Hunting of the Snark. :DD
Apr. 6th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
I love them both! It just happens that I had Wonderland when I was little, but I only recently got Looking Glass. So I haven't had as many chances to read it.

I have his entire works, but I've only read a few things so far. I have read Hunting of the Snark and it's wonderful :D

You don't need money! It would be a gift!

Tell me what you'd like :)

I'll just need your address once I'm done so I can send it to you.

Yes I will! I am actually getting pretty proficient at drawing Tim's Robin symbol so now I can put that skill to use!

Your challenge, should you chose to accept it is to make something Robin-esque for the Band!AU. Purple flowers for Steph, robin arrow shaped badges or something...

Still haven’t finished your present but I promise I will soon. Hope you’re feeling better. *hugs*
Apr. 6th, 2010 01:37 am (UTC)
Oh my god that is the best idea ever. You win at everything. I was planning to make some things for you anyway but now I can make band!AU stuff as well ^____^

:D I am feeling much better now that I am distracting myself with projects and am not talking to Kassie.
